Early film makers go all the way

Anyone who makes low budget movies is familiar with the term “suffering for your art.” This incredible excerpt from the memoirs of actress Lillian Gish provides some insight into the painstaking process of making movies back in the day. Gish’s memoirs detail the shooting of the 1920’s film Way Down East by director E.W. Griffith. Personally, I think this was a great way to save cash on expensive studio shoots. Just make sure you bring the hot cocoa!
